The GEM / KMS code which is needed for your intel driver is NOT in 9 
yet, and not sure when it will be. The only other option is to run it in 
VESA mode until that driver is working. Can you test / confirm if VESA 
is working with the snapshot on your system? You can select vesa mode at 
the boot-splash screen, option 7 I believe.
